Siberian Mammoth remains found to contain 'live cells'

A WELL-preserved frozen woolly mammoth discovered deep in Siberian permafrost may contain living cells – raising hopes the ancient beast will walk the planet again.

With the find, science is edging a tad closer to the "Jurassic Park" possibility of cloning a prehistoric animal.

Russia's North-Eastern Federal University said an international team of researchers had discovered mammoth hair, soft tissues and bone marrow some 100 metres underground during a summer expedition in the northeastern province of Yakutia.

Expedition chief Semyon Grigoryev said Korean scientists with the team had set a goal of finding living cells in the hope of cloning a mammoth. Scientists have previously found bones and fragments but not living cells.

Grigoryev told the online newspaper Vzglyad it would take months of research to determine whether they have indeed found the cells.

"Only after thorough laboratory research will it be known whether these are living cells or not," he said, adding that would take until the end of the year at the earliest.

Woolly mammoths are thought to have died out around 10,000 years ago, although scientists think small groups of them lived longer in Alaska and on Russia's Wrangel Island off the Siberian coast.

Scientists already have deciphered much of the genetic code of the woolly mammoth from balls of mammoth hair found frozen in the Siberian permafrost. Some believe it's possible to recreate the prehistoric animal if they find living cells in the permafrost.

Those who succeed in recreating an extinct animal could claim a "Jurassic Park prize," the concept of which is being developed by the X Prize Foundation that awarded a 2004 prize for the first private spacecraft.

So the conspiracy begins. Even though this report is dated prior to the OP, looks like the scientists are trying to deny/stem/hide rumors that live cells have been found

Mammoth hunt: Perfectly preserved Siberian mammoth fossils spread cloning rumor

Published: 11 September, 2012

Russian scientists in Siberia have discovered the perfectly preserved remains of a mammoth that reportedly contain living cells. The findings have sparked media speculation over the possible cloning of the wooly Ice Age giant.

The scientists were quick to deny the report of living cells, calling it“a misunderstanding.”


I find this interesting :headscratch:

Some reports suggested that controversial South Korean scientist Hwang Woo-Suk had already expressed interest in Yana 2012's findings.


Go figure :think:
